I'm contacting my installer support to see if the silent UI installs the toolbar (which it shouldn't, because it has to be selected by the user) which means you can create a batch file to install Waterfox without worry. I'll get back to you on this thumb.gif

Thanks!

I generally dont use silent installers because alot of the systems I use block batch files (company PC's)

However ill keep an eye out for a "slim" version paid or unpaid!

 

I'm never going to charge for WF. If you get bored of waiting for me:

Unpack a Firefox installer, replace Firefox's files with the ones from WF Portable and repack the installer wink.gif

_______________FF____WF
MemTest_______2,77___4,18
Closed Tabs ____0,30___1,13

Note: Eset Antivirus 5 detect the WF 15 update like a virus.

 

It's a false positive which shouldn't be happening because of the digital certificate.

Second: Is it not possible to run Firefox and Waterfox ad the same time? If i want to open Firefox i just get a new Waterfox window.

 

Since Waterfox is designed to use the same profile as Firefox, it can't run them both unless they're on separate profiles.

I had no idea about Unizeto Certum (I searched all over the web for free digital certificates) and the cheapest I could find were from Comodo. That's one reason I had to pay. As for the installer, AI came with an automatic updater (and saved the hassle I had with the built in automatic updater in Firefox). Plus AI is incredibly easy to use and requires little effort. I don't know everything, and WF started off as a personal project for OCN. I had no idea it would blow up so much, and as with anything that goes big, costs are incurred.

oh yeh another thing is, when you use the flash plug-in with firefox15, it uses a separate process in the task manager, but with WF15 that doesn't happen.

(Sorry for my bad english)

Look for plugin-container.exe?

Waterfox is supposed to use more memory it's a 64-Bit program. Also, it the amount of memory used is proportional to how much RAM you have... the more RAM the more memory. It's to increase performance.

I think it comes from the installer and not waterfox.
These antivirus checks risk behaviors, the installer is not very common, it is suspected.

hm. Since WF v13 (at least with me), it's always been consuming 500-600MB of memory regardless as to how many tabs I have open. I think at one point I saw it go as high as 800MB but it didn't stay there for very long.

With WF v15 it's been hanging around 525MB and I have 5 tabs open. Performance thus far has been *good* but I've only been using it for about 2-3 hours now. biggrin.gif

I have make a clean uninstall, before WF15 install, and .htm, .html, .website,... are assigned to WF15.

Two dumb questions:

1. Do Waterfox autoupdate or not? It did not notify me about the new version today.

2. What is the biggest differences between WF and Pale Moon?
post #3586 of 7225
So I'm guessing the problem is fixed? I'll try using it and try doing everything I was doing and see if the problem arises again. smile.gif Any one know if this browser seems "faster" or "snappier" than Chrome?

Waterfox should automatically update (but it's delayed for a bit).

 

Pale Moon is compiled with Visual Studio and tries to be its own browser.

 

Waterfox is compiled with Intel's C++ Compiler and tries to be as much as Firefox as possible (but faster tongue.gif).

Thanks!

I am just asking about Pale Moon because well... back at their page all I get is that it is "unique and optimized with a lot of features" but they won't list the damn features! (At least I can't find them).
I am using Waterfox as my default browser since a week back and I am very pleased, btw.

As what MrAlex said, Pale Moon is basically a stand-alone browser that looks like Firefox vs Waterfox, which is just Firefox recompiled to become a 64-bit variant, but much faster. Waterfox to me always feels faster than PaleMoon and I don't like how feminine PaleMoon looks like. tongue.gif

Hi!

I have been using WF since version 13.

I have uninstalled v14 and installed v15 this morning and then I got weird messages about MSVCP100.DLL and MSVCR100.dll being missing, which I did not get with the previous versions.

I have FF15 installed on another machine so I just copied the DLLs from there to WF15 folder and now I get "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)" error message.

Has anyone run into the same issue? Is there a fix? I noticed the same happens with the Portable release.

Thanks!
